“Human Eyes” Poem of the Day (2022)

“Human Eyes”

By Ashley O’Hare

These human eyes

were created dull.

The future cannot be seen–

we are blind to fate’s pull.

Try as we might,

dictating our life’s journey

is wasted effort;

as frivolous as directing

a paper airplane’s flight

during a hurricane.

The greatest aspects of life

would be rendered obsolete

if we developed perfect vision.

Love would lose magnitude

when its chemical structure is broken down.

Fear would cease to exist

if we knew all outcomes.

How utterly simple

our lives would be

if all could be seen.
